Eric Gordon has agreed to a four-year, $75.6 million extension with the Houston Rockets, according to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle. It's the largest contract the Rockets could've offered Gordon under the current CBA.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added that three years of Gordon's contract are guaranteed, with the fourth year hinging on either him making an All-Star team or the Rockets winning the championship.

Gordon's new contract will start in the 2020-21 season.

Gordon was set to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2019-20 season. There's now a possibility that he'll be a free agent in the same summer as Russell Westbrook and James Harden, as both superstars have player options worth $47 million for the 2022-23 season.

In his first season with the Rockets, Gordon was named the league's Sixth Man of the Year, posting averages of 16.2 points per game off the bench. He's averaged 17.1 points per game in the two seasons since, doing so on a high volume of 3-pointers. According to Basketball Reference, only seven players have made more 3-pointers than Gordon over the last two seasons.

With a core of Harden, Westbrook, Gordon and Clint Capela, the Rockets are considered to be one of the favourites to compete for a title next season.
